Overview

Plus-size Maggie O'Leary is America's Anti-Diet Sweetheart. Her informed column about the pitfalls of dieting is the one sane voice crying out against the dietocracy. She is perfectly happy with who she is and the life she leads. Until she gets the chance to spend some quality time with Hollywood's hottest star. Maggie knows she can't exactly show up looking like…well, herself. So she swallows her words and vows to become the skinniest fat advocate Tinseltown has ever seen.

Swearing her trusted assistant to silence, Maggie embarks on a "secret" makeover. From showdowns with her boss, who is convinced his star columnist is losing her edge—er, girth—to run-ins with her closest male friend, the trip through the famed red door of beauty is anything but graceful. But despite her doubts about abandoning the comfortable life she's known—not to mention deceiving legions of loyal readers who still think of her as their champion, L.A.-bound Maggie is hell-bent on getting her just "desserts"!

Bursting with wit, insight and humor, Deborah Blumenthal's Fat Chance is a guilt-free pleasure that is good to the last page!

Very fun and lighthearted. Would have enjoyed more of a stuggle in the weight loss part of the book (the character went from obese to thin, fit and model sexy in 8 weeks). But it was hard to put down at the beach!

This book shows that the under-dog can finally win. It gives you a different outlook on how a happy ending can end.

Author did a great job being that this is the first book that she has written, easy to understand.

It is my understanding that this is is the author's first novel and it is a great start. Fun, bright, and entertaining.

Okay -- while i have to say the book was somewhat entertaining, there wasn't a single likeable character until the VERY end. I thought the plot was so beyond the realm of possibility that i had to force myself to keep reading. Everything about the character, the story and her struggle was just TOO EASY.
